The Lancet Psychiatry and lived experience

This is good news!

The Lancet Psychiatry has announced that moving forward, it will be requesting that authors provide information on if, and how, people with lived experience of mental illnesses were involved in the shaping of studies.

Studies that did not include anyone with lived experience of mental illness in the design of the study, shaping of the questions, delivering the research or interpreting and writing up the findings will still be able to be published in the Lancet, but will now have to acknowledge the lack of Patient or Public Engagement and Involvement (PPIE) as a limitation of their work.
